Closer - YouTube | Thespie

Three contemporary circus companies from across Europe join together for Closer, Jacksons Lane theatre's short film produced under and inspired by lockdown, shot against the backdrops of magnificent Berlin colonnades, Helsinki’s urban wetlands and the historic skyline of Norwich, and performing from sculptures, swing-sets, benches and bridges. The film is tied together by the three companies’ exploration of intimacy and touch in a year of distance and finding community in a time of solitude. Aerial rope, aerial straps, contortion and hand-to-hand acrobatics are featured alongside many other circus skills. Closer, created with financial support from 101 Outdoor Arts, was produced in collaboration with Jacksons Lane’s Artistic Director Adrian Berry, who acted as outside artistic eye.
